– As noted, Stevie Richards became the first-ever Extreme Rising World Heavyweight Champion over the weekend. Here is a photo of the title from Extreme Rising’s Facebook page:
“The EXTREME RISING WORLD TITLE… there are mysteries behind this title in and on it. Let’s say this… if you like the TV show LOST, well this will be right up your alley. This is not no traditional belt by no means, and it will never be.”
– As seen on last night’s RAW, John Cena named himself as the first confirmed entrant for the 2013 Royal Rumble match. Cena then promised to become WWE Champion in 2013.
– Also from RAW, Ryback will face either CM Punk or Paul Heyman for the WWE Title on the January 7th RAW in a TLC match. WWE will reveal later this week on Main Event if Punk can wrestle or not.
